    How did you backup your vps? via Cpanel? or SolusVM or anyelse?

    Err,

    you would have to ask your provider to install it for you, i don't think you can do it!

    But i might be wrong.

    backup your vps using rsync (or solusvm/veportal) and then to restore, boot a vps with the same os and rsync the following directories back as root:

    /bin
    /etc
    /home
    /lib
    /root
    /sbin
    /usr
    /var

    then reboot. don't simply rsync / as you really don't want to mess with the /dev and /proc directories etc. i've done this for the last 3 vps moves and its worked flawlessly.

    an example restore command for your /home directory would be this - assuming you extracted your backup tar.gz to /vpsbackup on your local linux box:

    rsync -avp --progress --delete --numeric-ids /vpsbackup/home/ [email protected]:/home/
